G & T Practice
This page has a variety of tasks designed for practise and revision. Practice questions are an important part consolidating students' understanding of a concept. They can be found from numerous sources and the following is not intended as a 'fix all' solution. Most teachers appreciate that questions gathered from numerous different sources make the best diet!
Below are links to a series of focussed worksheets for this topic. The worksheets consist largely of 'Practise Questions' but most finish with more open ended questions to extend. Ultimately, students need to be able to answer questions from a variety of topics and contexts, but often it is necessary to spend some time focussing on particular skills whilst still in the process of learning them. The worksheets are clearly titled according to the particular sub-topic and come complete with answers.
Coordinates, points and lines
Distance between 2 Points - This is a worksheet designed to practise applying Pythagoras' theorem to working out the distance of between 2 points given the coordinates. This is a good follow up to the 'As the Crow Flies' activity. answers.
Lines, properties and relationships
Non - right angled trigonometry
Geometry of solids
This is a series of 'Fill in the Gaps' notes that I have created to help students keep useful records of the course. The rationale is explained in more detail on the 'Exams and Revision pages. Essentially the aim is bridge the gap between Students making their own notes on a blank canvas and being given detailed notes that they did not create.
G & T Notes - Coordinate Geometry (New 5.1, Previous 5.1, 5.2)
G & T Notes - Right-angled Trigonometry (New 5.2, Previous 5.3)
G & T Notes - Sine and Cosine rules (New 5.3, Previous 5.4)
G & T Notes - Geometry of 3D Shapes (New 5.4, 5.5, Previous 5.5)
IB style question
These will be past paper style questions to be used as a revision exercise at the end of teaching the topic. These are 'IB style' questions for the new syllabus that should help students to experience and build strategies for answering these types of questions. These can be given as preparation for a test of a similar nature available through the test page.
Coordinate Geometry Coordinate Geometry - This set of questions is designed to help students link the skills from sections 5.1 and 5.2 of the syllabus together to solve problems. This can be given as preparation for a test of a similar nature available through the test page (teachers only). Answers.
Right angled trigonometry Trigonometry - This set of questions is designed to help students link the skills from sections 5.3 and 5.4 of the syllabus together to solve problems. This can be given as preparation for a test of a similar nature available through the test page (teachers only). Answers
As the new syllabus is only just coming in to action these questions will take some time to develop. In the mean time I recommend the very useful and relevant IB questionbank published by the IBO. This resource has actual past paper questions and in fully searchable and customisable for the easy creation of practice resources and tests.
Errors - an appeal to users!
Few are infallible and we have all experienced frustration in finding errors in shiny new textbooks that we have just paid lots of money for! The advantage of online resources should be that as soon as errors are found they can be pointed out and corrected! When you find errors, please accept my apologies for the inevitable frustration it can cause but please also tell me as soon as you can on firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can correct it as soon as possible! Thank you!
